Destiny 2 Guardian subclass changes are “far from over”, buffs and nerfs are coming in Season 19

It’s fairly common to hear Bungie tweaking the Hunter, Titan, and Warlock subclasses in Destiny 2, but with so many years into the game, it might surprise you to learn that they’re a major focus for next season. Of course, there will be more changes in Season 19, but Bungie’s focus at the moment is on subclasses.

The latest post from This Week at Bungie states that subclass development is “far from over,” and goes into the nitty-gritty of what will change for each one. Starting with Solar, Restoration has proven “too powerful” in some contexts, so it will get a nerf. The Knock ‘Em Down aspect is also a point of contention, giving hunters too many advantages. On the other hand, Voids Overshields will gain increased survivability as they are currently not up to par. Also, Titan’s Shield Bash will be made more reliable when targeting enemies and opposing players.

As the newest addition, Arc doesn’t have that much data collected for Bungie to study, but Touch of Thunder Storm Grenades are the main concern – they’ll get a nerf. Finally there is stasis. Bungie “has no intention of returning Stasis to its original potency when Beyond Light launches,” but Coldsnap and Duskfield Grenades will be buffed. There are many more number-specific adjustments in the blog post, as well as additional details beyond the subclass changes.

For example, a new dungeon will appear when Season 19 starts. This is happening on Friday, December 9 at 12:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 a.m. PT. Bungie is keeping a low profile on the dungeon’s layout and theme, but it’s sure to be a welcome new challenge no matter what. Speaking of dungeons and raids, weapon crafting in the Deepstone Crypt will also be added next season. Similarly, a number of materials will no longer be available after Season 19.
